    Looks good to me, but I need a 12″ blade. I do crown molding, fine fnish work, stair parts, and rails. Anything out there that’s any good?

    There are plenty to choose from. 12″ miter saws come in all price ranges and with all options. It’s a matter of how much do you want to spend and how often are you going to use it.

    For my money the 12″ sliding compound mitre from Dewalt is the way to go. it is lighter than many competitors, making it easy to use. It also allows 60 degree cutting to one side and 50 to the other, slightly further than most of the other I have seen. I have had mine for seven years under some very strenuous conditions (twelve hour days in 100+ heat) and have never had a problem.

    We sell plenty of 12″ DeWALT miter saws as well. The Hitachi, due to a special purchase, was just a really good deal at the time. We just didn’t get enough to keep that deal running all that long, so the price went back up.

    There are a lot of really good miter saws out there, and there should be some neat cordless models coming out over the next couple years if you really want the portability. I still use a cordless from when Makita sold those several years back.

    You can get a 12″ Crafsman sliding saw with “allthe bells and whistles” on it. It was Editors pick in the Sept. issue of wood magazine. It beat out Dewalt (which are over priced to begin with) and all of the other named brands in every catagory.
